Just like us, Margot Robbie burns the yams at Thanksgiving: ‘It was terrible’

Actress Margot Robbie really wants to be in the kitchen cooking this holiday season, despite a history of burning the yams and the ham.

Listen, Thanksgiving is stressful. There’s a turkey to brine, pies to bake and sometimes, yams to burn.

Just ask Margot Robbie. “Last year for our Friendsgiving, all the ‘orphans’ in town, we just (cooked) a big feast. I was in charge of the yams and I lit them on fire,” the star of the upcoming “Mary Queen of Scots” admitted to USA TODAY. “It was terrible. So this year we’re dividing up who’s cooking what and I was like, ‘I’d really like to give the yams a go again!’ ” 

But then there was the ham. “And last Christmas I lit the ham on fire, which, again I was like, ‘Can I do the ham this year?’ And everyone was like, ‘We want to be able to eat the food, we don’t want it to be charcoal and just have nothing.'”

And no, the Australian star, who is weeks away from donning her Harley Quinn costume again for “Birds of Prey,” does not want some sub-par job. “They’re always like, ‘You can do a cheese board! Or you can pick the wine out for everyone!’ And I was like, ‘No, I want to be in the kitchen!’ ” she laughs. “But yeah, I suck in the kitchen.” Calling Ina Garten.

“Mary Queen of Scots” hits theaters Dec. 7.
